and the beat goes on

That is what we call a randomly-generated subject.

Anyhow, today started off normally enough – Penny got up and left for work and assumedly she set the alarm for a bit later in order to nudge me out of grogginess resultant from my inability to fall asleep at a reasonable hour last night. However, I did not get up when the alarm went off – for the alarm never rang. There was apparently a power outage a few hours ago that wreaked havoc on all of our wall-powered clocks. Rincewind decided to reboot as a result of this, so I know the outage lasted for more time than the UPS could handle.

Stephen and Nicole are en route to the house now, with Amber (potential new sister-in-law type person) in tow. I was supposed to be at work by now, but well, stuff happens, ne? Either way, nobody was really expecting me to get anything done in the office since the whole family run-around thing was planned in advance.

We had wanted to go to the Gaslight, but it looks like we’d have had to made reservations a few weeks in advance (normally we have done so in the past, but the only times we’ve ever gone were in result of Penny’s having won a contest at work, so things might have been different). I have no idea what exactly is going to happen this afternoon/evening.

I have homework for CS460 due tonight, but it shouldn’t take me very long, once I convert my knowledge of MySQL into Oracle.
